With a laconic message through her networks, Beyoncé informed her fans that a single from her new album Renaissance will be released this Monday night – at midnight, Eastern time – and will be called “Break My Soul” .
The singer had announced last week the release for July 29 of her seventh album, the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Lemonade.
The news of the new album was released after the singer deleted her profile photos from all her official social media accounts, which raised the suspicions of all her fans, to later confirm the release on her website.
Not much is known about the new single, but the album will include pop and country themes, with contributions from Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic frontman and songwriter for the hit “Halo,” which he co-wrote with Beyoncé.
Likewise, the so-called “Queen B” will appear on the cover of Vogue UK in July and the editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, noted in a letter that he has heard the album and that “it could be his most ambitious musical project to date”.
“The soaring vocals and fierce beats combine and in a split second I am transported back to the clubs of my youth. I want to get up and start dancing,” the letter reads, according to a report by NME. “It’s music that I love, music that makes you grow, that turns your mind to cultures and subcultures, to our people past and present, music that will bring so many together on the dance floor, music that touches your soul.”
Beyoncé has published several photographs of her for the Vogue edition.
